A man from Vietnam was recently shocked to discover the horrifying reason for his unexplained headaches.
The man, whose name has not been disclosed, had decided to seek medical attention after suffering from severe headaches and a loss of vision after an altercation at a bar five months earlier.
After been admitted to Cuba Friendship Hospital in the city of Dong Hoi, he underwent scans in an effort to determine what could be causing such debilitating symptoms.
Incredibly, doctors discovered that he had two foreign objects stuck in his skull.
Upon closer examination, these turned out to be two broken chopsticks.
At first, the man couldn't imagine how he had ended up with chopsticks inside his head, but then he cast his mind back to the altercation with another man that had happened at a bar five months earlier.
At the time, he had suffered a head injury and had visited the hospital where he was patched up and sent on his way, but now it seemed as though the person he had been fighting with must have pushed the broken chopsticks into his skull - most likely by shoving them up his nose.
Incredibly, despite such an ordeal, he couldn't actually remember this happening to him.
On the plus side, doctors were able to remove the chopsticks without issue.
